The wife and I have always arrived in port around 10.45 - 11.00am. I think this is a good time, because we've always been onboard by noon, eating lunch on the Lido deck.. 8) Our last cruise on the Holiday,we where onboard and eating lunch at 11.45. The cruise terminal employees for the Port of Alabama were amazing They diffently have there act together.
The 2-way radio's work good on the ship. We have the ones with the sub channels .I think we paid around $40.00 for ours several years ago. They will work in port, if your still in range of each other. Most have a good range of a couple miles atleast. Also, you may encounter some interferrance on some channels.Just seek out a clearer channel.
Since we stay together in ports, there left on the ship now . Just something else to keep up with.( or keep dry )
If your the type to drink a soda 2 or 3 times aday, do get a soda card. It will pay for itself quickly.
Relax and enjoy your cruise. And may you all have sunny skies, and smooth seas.
Happy Sailing to all;
